April is the cruellest month,
April is the cruelest month
breeding Lilacs out of the dead land,
Cloves grow in the dead earth
mixing Memory and desire,
Memory and desire are mixed
stirring Dull roots with spring rain.
The spring rain stimulates the root without vitality
Winter kept us warm,
Winter keeps us warm
covering Earth in forgetful snow,
The forgotten snow covers the earth
feeding A little life with dried tubers.
Dry roots nurture young life
Summer surprised us,
Summer shocked us
